  • Windows Installer 4.5
  • Visual C++ 2008 redistributable packages
    • for x86 systems install only vcredist_x86.exe
    • for x64 systems install only vcredist_x64.exe and vcredist_x86.exe
  • Visual C++ 2010 redistributable packages
    • for x86 systems install only vcredist_x86.exe
    • for x64 systems install only vcredist_x64.exe and vcredist_x86.exe
  • Visual C++ 2012 redistributable packages
    • for x86 systems install only vcredist_x86.exe

Steps to perform a silent installation of the DocuWare Desktop Apps:

1. Make sure that the directory ...\DocuWare\Web\ClientSetupData\ is available over the network

2. Create a new text file in the setup directory and add the following content: 

@echo off

echo ****************************************************
echo ** DocuWare 6.7 Desktop Apps are being installed ***
echo **** This window will be closed automatically. *****
echo ****************************************************

rem specify DWSetupPath, share folder C:\Program Files (x86)\DocuWare\Web\ClientSetupData\. Needs to be accessible from the client pc!
SET DWSetupPath=\\servername\ClientSetupData

rem specify DWSettingsPath, e.g. http://dwsrv/DocuWare/Platform/Home/ClientSetupInfo?orgId=1. Usually the organization ID is 1.
rem You'll find the Org ID in DW Administration > Organization > General - Identifier
SET DWSettingsPath=http://servername/DocuWare/Platform/Home/ClientSetupInfo?orgId=1

rem add settings path for DW Desktop default connection management in registry (HKLM)
if defined ProgramFiles(x86) (set RegPath=HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node) else (set RegPath=HKLM\SOFTWARE)
reg add %RegPath%\DocuWare\Setup /v SettingsPath /t REG_SZ /d %DWSettingsPath% /f >nul 2>&1

msiexec /i "%DWSetupPath%\%WECx64%" ALLUSERS=1 MSIFASTINSTALL=7 SETTINGSPATH="%DWSettingsPath%" /liwearmo %temp%\DocuWare_Desktop_Apps_Silent_Install_WEC.log /q

rem DW Desktop Plugins - end

rem DocuWare Upload App 
msiexec /i "%DWSetupPath%\DocuWare.UploadService.msi" ALLUSERS=1 MSIFASTINSTALL=7 SETTINGSPATH="%DWSettingsPath%" /liwearmo %temp%\DocuWare_Desktop_Apps_Silent_Install_UpS.log /q

rem DocuWare Workflow Designer

msiexec /i "%DWSetupPath%\DocuWare.ConnectToToshiba.msi" ALLUSERS=1 MSIFASTINSTALL=7 SETTINGSPATH="%DWSettingsPath%" /liwearmo %temp%\DocuWare_Desktop_Apps_Silent_Install_C2T.log /q

rem logging is optional. Disable it by removing "/liwearmo %temp%\DocuWare_Desktop_Apps_Silent_Install_Xxx.log"

3. Delete the corresponding rows for the apps which should not be installed.

4. Adapt the highlighted parts according to your installation.

5. Save the text file as e.g. DocuWare_67_Desktop_Apps_Silent_Install.bat

6. Run the BAT file manually or in a Windows logon script

Important notes:

  • Local Admin rights are required for the installation
  • On terminalservers we recommend to add the parameter REBOOT=R, in order to prevent an automatic reboot of the server.
  • If there is no connection, DocuWare Desktop will automatically connect to the DocuWare System, 2 minutes after the start.
    • Another option is to trigger the connection using the command line argument -createdefaultconnection for DocuWare.Desktop.exe. The connection is then established immediately at the start of DW Desktop (see example in the script above).
    • If windows authentication is set up in DocuWare, no further action is required by the user.
    • If windows authentication is not set up, the user will be prompted to enter his/her DocuWare credentials.
For a silent uninstallation use this script: 

@echo off

echo ****************************************************
echo **** DocuWare Desktop Apps are being removed *****
echo **** This window will be closed automatically. *****
